1. SCARLETT JOHANSSON AS NOLA RICE IN MATCH POINT (2005)

Match Point is one of Woody Allen’s rare, complete dramas. Borrowing certain plot elements from his earlier film Crimes and Misdemeanors, this movie cemented Scarlett Johansson as the sex symbol for a generation. There is not a single frame she’s in that doesn’t simply ooze sex appeal. And, despite her curves, this also happens to be one of her strongest performances, playing a home-wrecking side-piece for the married Chris Wilton, played by Jonathan Rhys Meyers.

Even though she has appeared in various other Woody Allen films, it’s in Match Point where she strikes the perfect balance between being both an actress and a bombshell. She’s also shown in a tight red bathing suit during the film that would send most red blooded males running for a cold shower. Or maybe a hot one with some bath lotions.
